Roland Bronson, age 92, of Lehan Road passed away on Wednesday, October 14, 2020 at CRVNA Hospice House.

He was born in Northumberland, NH the son of the late Bernard V. and Sarah L. (Ball) Bronson.

Roland retired from Nynex, and continued to work as a licensed Aircraft and Engine Mechanic and Aircraft Inspector, operating his own business called Roll-In Aero at the airport in Whitefield, NH, for over 20 years. He also had his private pilot license and his true passion was flying. He enjoyed fishing, and did this with his grandchildren. He served in the Korean War and continued to serve his country for over thirty years in the Army National Guard, retiring as a Major.

Roland loved life and lived life to its fullest. He was always ready with a helping hand to his family and friends. He had many skills to offer including mechanical, carpentry, painting, and contracting. Roland loved to bake cakes, breads, pies, and cookies for all those he knew and loved. His grandchildren especially appreciated how he always baked for them their favorite sweet treats, his heartfelt cards, and gifts for every occasion. Roland continued to be active tinkering on airplanes, helping friends with projects, and building things right up to the end of his life. He will be held closely in the hearts of many forever.

He is survived by his son, David Bronson and his wife Deb of Stratham and their daughter Caleigh; his daughter, Dodie Oakes and her husband Mike of Loudon and their son Jeremy; 3 sisters, Cora Bronson of Littleton, Catherine Webster of Lancaster, and Bethany Bronson of Berlin; and many nieces and nephews. He also had many close friends who he would share coffee with him in the mornings.

In addition to his parents he was predeceased by his brothers, Robert, Kenneth, and Vernard "Butch" Bronson; and his sister, Lucille McMahon.

What a great friend Roland has been always there to help with my airplane needs for the last 40 years. Hard to believe he has gone. I will miss Roland as I am sure that many others will.
Good bye my friend till we meet up again.
